Six-Time Grammy® Nominated DIXIE DREGS to Perform with Original Band Lineup

For the First Time in 40 Years at The Kent Stage on March 23

Critically acclaimed musical virtuosos the Dixie Dregs have announced they will perform a limited number of concerts in select U.S. cities beginning next spring, and will stop at The Kent Stage on Friday, March 23.

“This tour is the result of the overwhelming requests we’ve received from a loyal audience of diehard Dregheads, and new fans who have never seen us perform live, but discovered the band for the first time through Steve’s membership in Deep Purple, or Rod as the drummer for Winger,” said the band’s bassist, Andy West. “We can’t wait to play for them all.”

For guitar aficionados, Steve Morse needs no introduction, and his place in the pantheon of guitar greats is certain. But in fact, his career started with the Dixie Dregs.

The band paid its dues and honed its skills playing in bars and venues throughout the South in the mid-1970s. They established themselves in the firmament of American instrumental music, seamlessly fusing rock with progressive and jazz elements to create a uniquely instrumental-driven style that has stood the test of time.

Capricorn Records signed the Dixie Dregs to record Free Fall, released in 1977. The success and critical acclaim of that album announced the Dixie Dregs to the world, and after its release, they would become a cult favorite band that would have a lasting influence on much of modern rock. Over the course of 40 years, the Dixie Dregs have released 11 commercial albums of original material, and a number of compilations, reissues, and countless live bootlegs also exist. Along the way, they have garnered six Grammy® nominations.

Gold Circle tickets are $75, reserved floor seats are $55 and reserved balcony seats are $45. The concert begins at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m.
